Wahlberg doesn't think there ever was a time where she didn't want to go to practice during her senior year. The atmosphere was "unbelievable."
"Every single person came because they wanted to get better," Wahlberg said. "They wanted to see team to get better They wanted to see results."
Flanked by Hailey Rydberg, she's seen results. The power duo played soccer together since they were 10 years old. At North, they combined for a record of 80-9-7.
Come the fall, Wahlberg, who will play as a freshman at Michigan State, and Rydberg will no longer be teammates. Rydberg is headed to Iowa.
When Wahlberg looks across the field and sees someone she played with for eight years, what will that be like?
"I'm going to look over and smile," Wahlberg said. "I'm going to be excited to see her....I'm going to be a little bit said that we're not on the same team, but as long as Hailey is doing something that she loves – which is playing soccer – I don't care who she's doing it for."
